Sony gives Rolly Bluetooth control, storage

updated 11:45 am EDT, Tue October 28, 2008

Sony Rolly Fall 2008

Sony on Tuesday gave the Rolly a significant upgrade in its home country. The dancing player now gets the same 2GB of storage as the American version reviewed earlier but also gets a completely new Bluetooth control feature. Most Bluetooth-equipped cellphones and PCs can now directly steer the dancing player forwards, backwards, and through rotations as well as trigger motion presets. Windows computers can also queue up their own music to play over the wireless link.

As before, the player supports common AAC and MP3 music formats with choreography from Sony's custom software and supports direct Bluetooth audio streaming from cellphones with A2DP support.

The updated Rolly comes in white, special edition black and a new pink color for its Japanese introduction, which will have the new model arrive in stores on November 21st for the equivalent of about $422. Sony hasn't said whether it will add the newer Bluetooth functions or other upgrades to the US version. [via Impress]

    Have they sold any of these? I'm serious, I can't see why anyone would buy one.
